Hello dear friends,
I thought I might do something different this time and use a glue pad with solid part of stamp and gold leaf (or variegated leaf) so then I used Black acrylic paint to stamp on top with the line stamp. I used white acrylic paint to stamp the love but it did not show up well so I outlined it with black. I then used Liquid Pearls in silver and gold to make dot decorations on the flowers. I let it dry and embossed the whole thing. Then I got my glue gun out and some gold glitter sticks and did some doodling with it. The black mat was done with gold, white and silver web sprays. The leafing actually photographed better than I thought it would.
I was stumped a few times along the way but walked away and did something else for awhile...that works for me MOST of the time, either that or sleeping on it!

Whoa!! This is soooo super cool!! Thanks for sharing how you accomplished it, too. Love all the different media you used to achieve you final results. I didn't even know they MADE glitter glue sticks! This is crazy awesome! I'm so glad you took the time to play along. :)

Amazing, Robin! I'm going to have to try to figure out how you did your leafing because I just bought some gilding flakes and I can tell you my two attempts so far don't look anything like this. And I love the white sentiment outlined in black. Fabulous work!
